If you’re a community college student at certain institutions in the Philadelphia-Camden area, entering a four-year bachelor’s degree program just got a whole lot easier.
Drexel University (PA) recently entered into an agreement with Delaware County Community College so that students can earn credits towards a bachelor’s degree while simultaneously taking classes at DCCC.
Across the river, Rutgers University-Camden (NJ) has formed a series of partnerships with Camden Community College. Through a conditional agreement, if a student graduating with an associate’s degree in arts or sciences has maintained a 3.0 GPA, they are guaranteed admission into one of Rutgers Camden’s three campuses. Additional agreements include provisions for non-English speaking international students to join Rutgers’ ESL program and an option that enables psychology students to earn credits toward a Rutgers’ degree while enrolled at CCC.
